We are excited to offer our first ever Kayak Safety/Paddle Safety class for our Heroes. This class is tailored for those who have purchased their own kayaks and are looking to learn new and valuable skills to become safer anglers. We ask that you only sign up for this class if you have your own kayak. IF the 10 spots do not fill then we will open it up to the rest of our Heroes who may be looking to get their own kayaks. We will provide the kayaks to those Heroes if that need arises.
The class will be taught by Tom Reilly of Central Coast Kayaks who has over 30 years of paddling experience. Tom is a licensed guide and is certified by the ACA as an expert paddling instructor.
The class will go over: Paddle strokes, Kayak self rescue, buddy rescue, safety gear, towing, surf launch, surf landing and multiple other key skills for the kayak angler.
You will need to stop by Central Coast Kayaks in Shell Beach to get fitted for a wetsuit, booties and helmet PRIOR to arriving for the event at 10:00 am.
